Early Childhood Education

Early childhood education regards education in early childhood, one of the most vulnerable stages in life. At Newcastle, we teach children ages 3-5 so most of the information on our site is focused on that age group. According to the NAEYC (National Association for the Education of Young Children), early childhood education spans the human life from birth to age eight.

Education at Newcastle includes a careful balance of academics and play.
